Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

The world-famous Matterhorn, lovingly called “Horu” by locals, can be seen directly from Zermatt Youth Hostel. Every day of the year, the Youth Hostel offers a charming alternative for all those guests for whom a luxurious hotel room is not necessary to enjoy the Zermatt mountains.

Backpackers from all over the world, as well as families, groups and young-at-heart senior citizens receive a very warm welcome in a cosy atmosphere the whole year round. Whether they choose the inexpensive variant in a dormitory or a double room with a separate shower and WC, breakfast in the dining room with a view of the Matterhorn is always included in the price.

Once you arrive in Zermatt, it’s not far to the Youth Hostel. It is located between the town centre and the station of Klein Matterhorn Railways. It is a 15-minute walk from the railway station to the Youth Hostel. A slightly more comfortable journey by electric bus or taxi is also possible. (Zermatt is car-free).

Had a great stay at the zermatt hostel, staff we're friendly and helpful. Evening meal for 17.50chf was an absolute bargain and very tasty. The lockers were very handy to stow my rucksack. The room was good with two bunk beds, what I liked was each bed space came with its own power socket and night light. Showers and toilet were twenty seconds away down the corridor so very handy, showers were hot. I can't really suggest any improvements, it was a great stay.

Overall very good as usual (my fifth och sixth visit to the hostel). Silent hours were not kept very well, however. Both Saturday/Sunday morning had doors slamming, people not keeping there voice down etc at a very early morning (5 AM-ish).

A very expensive stay for the quality of the room and the distance from the train station. Your staff could make the place more friendly by a continual cup of tea/coffee and a hot water boiler. The absence of a simple kitchen is also a pain. I realise that Zermatt is probably the most expensive location in Switzerland but I'd suggest that 90 CHF is the right price for that standard of room/location.
